Pros It looks amazing
Cons By looking at this device you think it's amazing. From the minute you turn this wast of a device on you understand it's underpowered, not ready for primetime and worthless.
Summary I bought the Archos 9 wanting a Windows7 version of the iPad. What I ended up getting was the slowest PC experience I have ever seen. It's embarrasing for Intel and Archos. How can you sell something so underperforming and keep a straight face? Especially, with your hype on this device as game changing, revolutionary, and blah blah. LIES! Bottom, line great idea Archos - get some performance, figure out how to use a touch interface and give me call. Archos you need to take a lesson in human factors and user experience. DO NOT BUY THIS!!
Pros very responsive screen. High Definition video playback, Windows7 plateform.
Cons there should have been 2 more usb ports and a card reader and a standalone back camera
Summary with this price and beutiful design and good battery life..its an amazing Tablet
Pros Wifi transfer from my desktop comp, play movie well, Wireless broadband is flawless, very low price, can tweak to have hibernate function, can rotate orientation by clicking on the desktop of archos 9, looks great, could use 32gb SD cardS.
Cons a little slow but considering the price is ok. the harddisk space is a little short but quite ok too
Summary I would buy it twice and won't regret it. It's almost all I need.
Pros Once it's done updating and you block all the background aps. it actually is a decent tablet. Mine Has Ultimate and it works fine once it's ready to. plays videos fine from netflix or youtube. games are fine as well.
Cons sluggish because of the garbage atom processor from intel. intel is a terrible company, they are always behind on the curve. Archos should of never got into bed with those losers. I usually like their products, not this one...
Summary Needs a better processor, preferably from AMD. It needs A Better Battery, after one hour I'm charging it again. the touch screen was slow to respond, it was better to use the laser roller on the right of the device for it to respond better. Otherwise I think it's okay. better processor would solve most of it's problems. It was too expensive for what I got, I could have bought a dell from 2 years ago and would have gotten a better deal for the money, and I hate dell. An Archos Device whose hardware is asus main board with a 64 bit multicore amd processor with at least 4gb of ram and a 2 tb hard drive Ati Video, Xonar sound and a linux based OS would be AWESOME!!! That's something I would pre-order for about a G, and it would be so worth it...
Pros Bluetooth and Wireless
Cons *Window 7 always comes back as not genuine
*Touch Screen Rarely Works, if it does, it is very slow
*Digital P.O.S(Piece of S**T)
*I had to sent it back 3 times to get fixed and it came back worse every time
*ARCHOS refused to refund my money
Summary Do not buy this product, I even formatted the drive and tried to install my own windows 7 on it and I kept getting the BSOD (Blue Screen Of Death) everytime i would restart it, after having to send it back 3 time to get fixed, it still did not work right and then ARCHOS refused to send me a newer product or refund my money.
This pad pc is not what some other claim it to be be, it needs a AMD processor (it has an Intel ATOM cell phone processor)it is very slow, it goes nuts if you try to install Malwarebytes.org on it because it is full of bugs, the driver from Archos are ancient and have not been updated.
Battery life sucks on it and it drags during startup, very lousy piece of technology.
